GAA Board Elections Underway; Annual Meeting Set

UNC General Alumni Association members have begun casting votes for candidates for the association’s Board of Directors.

All Carolina Alumni members as of Jan. 1, 2019, are eligible and encouraged to vote in each race, including races representing areas other than those in which the member lives. Members can vote online or by mail. Here’s how that works:

• If you have an email address on file with the GAA, you should look for an email message in early January detailing this option. Your email message will contain a link allowing for one vote to be cast.

• If you do not have an email address — or you have one, but it’s not in your alumni record — you will be mailed a print ballot.

• Not sure which applies to you? Go to

• Any member — including those with access to email — can continue to vote using a print ballot if preferred. Print ballots may be requested after Jan. 14 by contacting Paula Poe ’89 on the GAA staff by phone at (919) 962-7051; by mail at P.O. Box 660, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27514-0660; or by email at

• The deadline for online voting is 5 p.m. March 29.

• Completed print ballots must be received at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center, P.O. Box 660, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27514-0660 no later than March 29. Facsimile replies are not accepted.

The chair for 2019–20, J. Rich Leonard ’71 (’73 MEd), who was elected last year as chair-elect by the Board of Directors, and those elected from the 2019 ballot assume office at the Annual Alumni Luncheon in Chapel Hill on Saturday, May 11.

The annual meeting of the General Alumni Association is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. April 13 at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center.
